First? Though I guess it no longer matters. Sigh...

On a more positive note, I want them story trailers for this game. It's the thing I look forward to the most since I suck at multiplayer on fighting games.

*Green Arrow slides in all cas'*

So is this going to be the Split/Second of fighting games?

Played this a bunch at PAX and had a blast. I was really pleased to see that in all my time there Aquaman never lost. Was a little disappointed they didn't have all the announced characters there though.

SHAZAM!

Has anyone read the comics they put out? I think they're extremely interesting and by far the only marketing tie-in to a game launch thingy I've ever liked. Game looks great too, even if at first I was skeptical.

those animations look really fast, not sure how I feel about that with realistic graphics

The comics are great. The art and dialogue are a bit wonky at times. But the story is better than most of the New 52 DC's putting out right now. What Joker does to Superman is fucking brutal.

How do you zipline using a strung bow? There's no way to get the bow on or off assuming the cable's attached at both ends (which it has to be)

The demo comes out on April 2nd by the way. I'm really looking forward to feel how it plays because everything they've showed so far looks pretty awesome. I even like the weirdness of some of the quick movements.

Looks great, excited for the story mode as well after MK.

Pause the video while he's sliding.

That has to be one hell of a strong string.

That's it. I just watched all the promo videos and now I'm going to the comic book store to pick up their run right now. I keep seeing it in there, but I haven't got it.

Congratulations WB Games marketing department. You win.

Wait, is Black Adam related to Captain Marvel? Why do they both say "Shazam!"?

Edited by MrHadouken

I want to like this, but each video I see makes it seem like the game is going to be so gimmicky.

@assinass: He's Captain Marvel's (now simply called Shazam) main antagonist.

Oh. That didn't really even occur to me as a possibility.

I take it this isn't supposed to be a fighting game with a 'serious' tone.. Because those cartoonish animations coupled with the environmental attacks make this look absolutely hilarious to me.

I know, I know.. Comic books are SUPER SERIAL YOU GUYZ.

It seems as serious as any other fighting game story and it's obvious they've put more thought into it than most.

Dunno, I kinda liked Green Arrow better when he was played by Jeremy Renner :/

@assinass: they both say "SHAZAM!" but they call on different gods. Adam is a predecessor of Capt. who became corrupted by power.

Capt. Marvel calls on two Greek Gods, two demigods, a Titan...and Solomon:

S The wisdom of Solomon;
H The strength of Hercules;
A The stamina of Atlas;
Z The power of Zeus;
A The courage of Achilles;
M The speed of Mercury.
Black Adam calls on various Egyptian gods:
S The stamina of Shu;
H The speed of Heru;
A The strength of Amon;
Z The wisdom of Zehuti;
A The power of Aton;
M The courage of Mehen.

@meowshi: I don't mean the story when I say it doesn't look to have a "serious tone" I mean the way the game moves and animates make it look like a cartoon and not a standard fighting game.

I'm also not trying to imply that it's a bad thing that it's not "serious"... Far from it. I just think the gameplay looks funny as hell.

Wow, Green Arrow...

Shhhhhh....

@vuud: Black Vulcan was "invented" in 1977, because Hanna-Barbera could not get the rights to use Black Lightning in their TV show, so they made their own version. The character's creator Tony Isabella was feuding with DC at the time about who owned the new Black Lightning character which kept him out of the Super Friends TV show. DC claimed Black Lightning was a revamp of a previous (horrible and thankfully unpublished) character while Tony Isabella, who did the revamping, felt he was now an entirely original concept that took nothing from what he was created to replace. Hanna-Barbera just made a new character with similar powers and thus moved on with their TV show.

I like this game very much, I have added this game to the list of my favorite games. Some other interesting games for me are shooting games and action games
